Book Trailer Thursday: Guest Post: The Hunger Games
Posted by: Courtney Jones

So, I’ve been away for a while. Now that Sarah Hunter is doing a fine job taking over the awards beat, I’ve had a little more time to nurse my growing Hunger Games addiction. Annie Bostrom has been kind enough to let me share my rabid anticipation of the film and fill in for this week’s Book Trailer Thursday post. I know what you’re thinking, a grown woman should not be frothing at the mouth over a YA series, but surely you jest. 1) Clearly you’ve never heard of the Twilight series–grown women, shaking and crying. 2) The Hunger Games Trilogy is awesome. And its awesomeness was sort of in danger when Hollywood decided it was already time to adapt the first book into a film. But then the trailer came out on Monday, and the Internet freaked out. Don’t believe me? Check Tumblr, or The Hairpin’s quick trailer review. They note, “Finally, a trailer that doesn’t show all the best parts (hopefully).” So what’s all the hubbub about? Behold:

The Hunger Games

Did you get chills when Rue’s four note anthem rang out? Were you transfixed by Seneca Crane’s sweet beard? The film is due to be released March 23rd. Let the games begin.

    I’ve just finished the first book and am looking forward to seeing what happens with the rest of the series. Hopefully I’ll get through them all before the movie comes out in March.

    My review: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

  2. John S. Brana Says:

    Wow. I was barely able to put “The Hunger Games” down for a second after the first few pages got me completely hooked. Suzanne Collins narrative here has an immediacy to it that, when combined with the very dramatic life-or-death plot, is incredibly compelling. It’s entertaining, and incredibly disturbing all at once.
